Too Cute.

This is a LO I completed for 'Scrap your heart out', sketch 13 over on 'The Boxx'
Ive been AWOL lately and I thought it was about time I joined in again. I loved Melissa choice of sketch this week. Id always wanted to try something like this with all the strips as a background.
I'm not overly happy with how it turned out though. I like the colours but I'm not happy with the placement of everything.
It just seems a little lop sided to me any way. Here it is.
I was a bit cranky this morning because the little cherub pictured above broke my trimmer. GRRRR! I couldn't possibly do with out a trimmer I mean I could do it the old fashioned way with a craft knife and a ruler but wheres the fun in that. So I went out today and bought myself a new trimmer. Wow I didn't realise what a dinosaur my old one was. LOL.
Loving the new one its a bright pink Cutterpeade. I'm feeling very spoilt now and cant wait to try it out.
To be honest I don't think the old one cut 100% straight anyway. Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I'm on a mission to make some Christmas cards next week and theres a few LOs rattling around in my little head and a few I want to get done on Scraps Of Us. So hopefully Ill have more to post soon.
Hope you are having a great weekend. TFL.
